Exchange Store Keeps Growing
Posted on 2006-10-25
Was wondering if anyone can provide some insight as to why a Store keep growing even though I two mailboxes on it.
The setup is as follows:
|->Archive Storage Group
|->journal1 (journaling mailbox)
|->User Storage Group
|-> (user mailboxes)
We are using a 3rd party software that uses the "Archive all messages sent or received by mailboxes on this store:" on the "Mailbox Store" to the journal1 mailbox. The 3rd party then connects to the mailbox via imap connection, downloads, deletes the email and stores it on a sql server database.
The postmaster mailbox is also used for all of the notifications regarding spam, etc from Symantec SMTP services, it's size is about 608,000 (kb)
My question, why is database *.edb file continually growing, currently it's at 13 gigs.
We run "Maintenance" on the store every night from 11:00 pm till 4:00 am.
Any help will greatly be appreciated.
